As it starts to warm up, the Lansing area comes alive with activities for all ages. Here are some of the things happening this month.

April 28: Small Talk Open House

Small Talk Children’s Assessment Center is a local nonprofit that provides important services for children who are victims of abuse. This includes a child-friendly environment where children can be interviewed during the investigative process to minimize further trauma. Small Talk is also the focus of MSUFCU’s employee fundraising for the first half of the year. They just moved into a new location and are having an open house for the community to learn more about their mission and success.

Spring Cleaning
April 16: Document Destruction Day
If you’re spring cleaning, you might have sensitive papers and old hard drives to get rid of.

They will confidentially shred everything for free!

April 16: Recyclerama April 16 (Sponsored by MSUFCU)
